Beware of "Chapri" groups on Instagram, luring people using cheap-tricks like discounts or offers tailored to mislead specific genders. These "Chapri" category people generally use stolen or unauthorised reposted images/videos/text content.

Always research about compatibility and "category" of the trek group you plan to join. After all, you will be spending entire duration of the trek in company of the group you choose. 

As per our experience "People often opt for groups that match their mindset -OR- sometimes by mistake get carried away by cheap manipulative marketing."
